Locke & Key TV Series Gets Pilot Order From Hulu

Last year, IDW Entertainment and series writer Joe Hill revealed they were developing the hit comic series Locke & Key for television and now Hulu has officially ordered a pilot for the series, which has Carlton Cuse (The Strain, LOST) set to executive produce and showrun. In addition, Scott Derrickson, who just directed Marvel’s Doctor Strange, will direct the pilot episode and potentially helm even more episodes should it be picked up to series.

Locke & Key tells the story of the Locke family and their journey into Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all! The series was written by Joe Hill with art by Gabriel Rodriguez

“I love this story,” Hill previously said of the proejct. “The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.”

Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead) will serve as executive producers along with Joe.

Locke & Key has had a long history of making it to another medium with Dimension Films purchasing the rights in 2008. Following that, a television series was in development at FOX in 2010 (which was even given a series order, but never went forward after the pilot was produced), and finally a failed film adaptation with producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci in 2014 with Universal Pictures.

Legion Season 2 Will Return To FX In 2018

FX has just revealed that Legion season 2 is on the way! The critically acclaimed Marvel drama series hails from Noah Hawley, the creative force behind FX’s hit Fargo. Legion marks one of the most-watched new cable dramas of the past year.

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” reads a statement from Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “More than a new series, ‘Legion’ is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of ‘Legion’.”

“We are thrilled there will be a new season of ‘Legion’,” says Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.”Noah’s spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We’re particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.”

Hawley will continue as Executive Producer on Legion season 2, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

First Trailer For Bright, Starring Will Smith & Joel Edgerton

bright

Bright is Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s next project and will be coming to Netflix in December. The film reteams Ayer with Suicide Squad star Will Smith and is also headlined by Joel Edgerton (The Gift, Exodus: Gods and Kings) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus).

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
